Tried a restart: no luck
Tried Reset Network Settings: no luck

Any good ideas ?

This is what they mean (iOS 11)
Oh! This used to show if you restored the iPhone but eventually it disappears. Normally, that Carrier setting is set to automatic depending on the SIM card.

It is renamed to “Cellular Network” instead of Carrier under Cellular setting.

It is not supposed to disappear, because it allows the user to switch cellular networks when roaming.

Exactly.
Here’s a screenshot:
It’s a change in iOS 12. This is my X on iOS 12. It is now under Cellular settings and renamed as Cellular Network which is what I’m telling you. In your case, it might be under Mobile Data setting. Have you check it?

I have essentially that in iOS 11 (and had that in iOS 10 and before).

Seems like something like that might be more dependent on something like carrier settings.

I noticed that too. For T-Mobile, I only see Carrier setting only if I restore my device. Then, it would disappear forever even on iOS 11. I’ve never seen Mobile Data setting either in iOS for a long time too.

It’s language dependent, change your language to English UK and Cellular will be called Mobile Data.

I just updated my iOS to 12 and I don’t have this under cellular. It’s annoying because before I cross to the US I like to manually change the carrier and now I cannot do that. Why did Apple remove the option???

Same thing I always do before going to the USA or visiting my in-laws who live in Canada, but they’re right on the US border.
